Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
by Christopher Durang
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a spoof on Chekhov. According to author Christopher Durang, "My play is not a Chekhov parody...I take Chekhov scenes and characters and put them into a blender." What a blend, master of the absurd, he gives each of his 6 actors a monologue allowing them to dazzle, at the same time unveiling the folly of humanity This is comedy on the edge of tragedy depicted with razor wit.
The play is the winner of the Tony Award, the Outer Circle Critics Award, the NY Drama Critics’ Circle Award and the Off-Broadway Alliance Award.
